hello, and welcome to the Storycore broadcast, in this episode, we here from Robert Matten. he grown up in Mississippi during the 1960s and he was close to both of his parents. he tells he can talk them about anything. but here he tells a friend about one topic that keeped him talking for years.
when i was ten, i told my parents i was going to marry a men when i grow up. and mother, you know, grown up in a farming community, she was like *. i don't know. and when i dicided to stright living openly. i came out to them again. cause my mother always told me:"we can handle anything as a family as long as you tell us first". i don't wanna here from friends or strangers. so i told them. my father was very cool with it right away. he said" it is doesn't matter  if you spend your life with a man or with a woman as long as make something you can hold your head about. " my mother took sometime cause she thought it was her faught and she feel guilty about it.


my granddma said to her, you miss out on a beautiful relationship because you cann't accept this about him. he is still the same, person you raised or grow up with. and i went home to visit my  mom. and this perticular night , she asked me  if i would stay up with her idea . and she just starting asking me all this questions . WoW, it was like two men what could we possibly do and all that kind stuff. it's like you have been embarrassed and you know, you don't need anwer. and i said "i won't embarrassed to shork if you ask me." and she said " i wanna know. "


so i explained to her, she sat there with straight face. and afterwards she just went " just curious".
in October, of 2006, when my mother was passing. she put a hand on my face, she said you were so precious, she said i love you. and i said" i love you too mom". she said " no, i mean unconditionally".
i was stunned. just such  open, beautiful , acceptance. it's just the greatest gift she could give me.
that's  Robert Matten with his friend Tom Curcen in Los Angeles.
